White House Hints At Some Exemptions On Propose Steel Tariffs.

: 03/08/2018 - 12:11

The White House says there could be exemptions to US plans to impose tariffs on metal imports, in a softening of its tough stance.

Canada, Mexico and other countries may see "carve-outs" on national security grounds.

US President Donald Trump has said steel products will face a 25 percent tariff, with 10 percent on aluminium goods.

But there are fears the plans could spark a trade war.
